The MUSA advocates are here to support students to overcome academic or welfare challenges big or small which may arise during their tertiary journey.

This service is free, confidential, and independent from Massey University.  It is a safe space where you can understand your rights and options through support and advice, including referrals to appropriate services.

Qualified social workers Kerry Howe and Katheryn Margaret Pascoe have the experience and resources to support you through any issues that might occur from dodgy landlords, academic grievances, to a financial hardship grant for those moments when an unforeseen and temporary situation pops up.  Find out more here.

The advocates can attend meetings or hearings with you either in person or through telephone conference if required, whether this be for Massey matters or with external agencies.
